Seriously, how did we ever did it before our smart phones? Remember that one time when we were lost and we had to stop somewhere to ask someone for directions? Yeah, I am not sure when I did that last. I used to have this huge honkin’ atlas in the back of my truck. I used to have a Thomas Guide for LA when I lived there.
I was thinking about this. It’s a good thing that we have hundreds and thousands of friends because we aren’t that skilled at talking to strangers much these days. It’s crazy – this notion of ‘strangers.’ But back to the asking for directions thing – it just doesn’t seem like we even know how to do that these days.
Luckily, Google is our friend. You don’t ever need to ask a stranger for directions ever again because Google – our friend can – get us there. Google can tell us who’s there and show you pictures of the place – before you even get there. We never need to ask for directions any more – just ask Siri.
Of course, you’ll get a ticket for doing so while you’re driving but that’s another post.
